[img=111311_IS.jpg]On this week... Green Day's "International Superhits" was released on 13th November, 2001 as a compilation of all Green Day's singles from Dookie through to and including Warning. The album also includes previously unreleased songs Maria and Poprocks and Coke. As well as a CD release, there is also "International Supervideos" - a collection of all the (awesome) music videos that accompanied the Green Day singles.

At the time, some saw this release as a signal of a possible demise for Green Day, with the subsequent album releases after breakthrough album Dookie being more modestly received, both critically and commercially. On top of that, best hits albums are often seen as an acknowledgement by a band (or act), that they've reached their commercial peak and so they "mail in" a best hits compilation, rather than continuing to be creative and release new material. Little did we all know (and quite likely that includes Green Day) that the band were a couple of years away from smashing their way back into mainstream success again with their career defining album, American Idiot.

Having said that, International Superhits/Supervideos is (i consider them as one) a must have for any Green Day fan's music collection. In one album, it spans the career of the band to 2001 with all the classics that you would associate with Green Day at that time. I could name them all, they're all worthy of a mention, so i'll merely point you in the direction of our music section where we have the full track listing, along with lyrics to all the songs and links to their videos. Go geek out on International Superhits!
